I was just outside with Charlie and the caterpillars are now on the Carolina Jessamine vine. I don’t know much about caterpillars. Probably need to do some reading.
I don’t recall having them last year. Or any caterpillar for that matter.
Does that mean I’ve planted some type of plant that attracted them to my yard?
The Night Creature:
Whatever night creature that is lurking outside must have wandered all over the patio.
As soon as I let Charlie out he rushes around sniffing, on the hunt for this creature that’s driving him and me both crazy. He sure doesn’t look like he’s having trouble getting around out there!
He tries to insert himself into every nook and cranny hunting for it.
I noticed that my little tomatoes are probably not what I thought they were. I saw this morning that one has turned yellow. So I must have bought a type of cherry tomato. I just can’t recall what kind I bought now.
But I’ll be eating tomatoes soon and I look forward to that.
Plant Caddies For Heavy Pots:
I’m so thankful that I have the heavy pots on rolling plant caddies because some look very hot and defeated at times, and now I can just roll them into a bit of shade.
I think what hurt my back was lifting one of the heavy pots to adjust it on the caddie because it appears the wheel is halfway broken.
The pot was kind of listing to the side and you know I have to have everything straight. Plus I was afraid the pot would fall off the side if the wheel completely broke underneath it.
This is the kind I have under several pots and they are the best in case you’re interested in buying any. They come completely assembled too. They are just over $20 each, but well worth the money:
These below are better. The price was $37.99 for a pack of two, but they’re not as good as the one above:
But whatever you do don’t buy these. They have proved to be worthless.
They’re currently unavailable on Amazon now so that’s good. They just aren’t sturdy enough and the wheels are far skimpier than the first one.
When will I ever learn not to go for the cheapest thing first? You do get what you pay for most of the time.
It was one of my best decisions to put the big container plants on rollers. As we get older we don’t need to be lifting those heavy pots by ourselves. But has that stopped me? No.
I have always been guilty of biting off more than I can chew, and my body is paying for it.
Ivy Sleeping At The Top Of Her Cat Tower:
Look at my Ivy Lou sleeping at the top of her tower. She looks so sweet and innocent.
She pretty much lives on that cat tower now. I’m so glad I got it for her.
